Speaking of misdirectionists, in your OP on the topic, why didn't you comment on what's actually happening in Baltimore? Or over in the American Politics thread? Somewhere, anywhere? Strangely silent on this, CM, until you can pin something on somebody other than the black left. Go figger...
Not sure what you mean by that?

I think blacks on all sides of the political fence are upset with the events of the the last 6 months or so. Affluent/right of centre blacks just are not going to go out and riot in the streets (they have something to lose by doing so), it doesn't mean that they are not a little bit pissed off.

I meant that CM never broached the topic until he had somebody other than the black left to blame.

The black left is to blame for the looting, rioting, burning, etc. No comment at all from CM. Then, & only then, when suddenly he could pin something (the wrong photograph on Fox) on the right, white side of the spectrum, did he comment.

Pretty particular what he chooses to post about...

In physics for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, so I am not so sure about that...

In chronological terms one action predicates/leads to another.

So who is to blame?

In the US IMO the blame is shared and has been for a long time now, kind of like Israel and Palestine.

The "black left"? I doubt many of the people involved would consider themselves left, right, centre, whatever. They're simply pissed at the ongoing incidents of police brutality. Heck, another one just came to light yesterday - a white cop kicking a suspect- who was on his knees and complying - in the face, breaking his jaw. That was from 2013. The videotape has just now come to light.

As for Fox, yeah, I'll take any opportunity to dump on that bunch. They've been shown to consistently lie, misrepresent, obfuscate, and cheer on the wingnuts. They're a blight on the concept of journalism.

Terribly sorry to be posting things that are upsetting to you, but don't expect it to stop anytime soon....

So essentially it seems FeXL was right. You just posted the photo because you mistakenly thought it impugned FOX News. Nice.

Your posts are hardly upsetting--just frequently out of date and inaccurate.

It matters not what they call themselves. The city is 67% black & has been Democratic since the 60's. 1+1=black left. As to the white minority in the city, haven't seen many of them trashing the place in the news footage. Either they're sneaky or simply not engaging.

Can't blame them for being pissed. I'd be, too. However, show me how trashing your own city will, in any way, shape or form, alter the situation? All that does is reinforce the illusion that you are nothing more than, in one mother's words, a common thug.

I experience police arrogance & stupidity on a fairly regular basis. Do you think shooting the cop, flipping his cruiser or burning the corner grocery store is going to get me any closer to resolution?

On the contrary, not upsetting at all. In this case (as in many), however, perspective is important.

What does disappoint is when pointed questions remain unanswered...

Further on lies promulgated by MSM. The first link mentions a number of questionable reportings by the MSM. I don't agree with everything he has to say but most of the article is salient. The second is in regards to the Snowden story that's been circulating for the last couple of days.

Snowden, Putin, Greece: It’s All The Same Story

Quote:
Another change we really can’t get our heads around is how the media have turned from a source of information to a source of – pre-fabricated – narratives. We’ll all say to some extent or another that we know our press feeds us propaganda, but, again arguably, few of us are capable of pinpointing to what extent that is true. Perhaps no big surprise given the overdose of what passes for information, but duly noted.
M'bold.

Nailed it...

The Sunday Times’ Snowden Story is Journalism at its Worst — and Filled with Falsehoods

Quote:
Western journalists claim that the big lesson they learned from their key role in selling the Iraq War to the public is that it’s hideous, corrupt and often dangerous journalism to give anonymity to government officials to let them propagandize the public, then uncritically accept those anonymously voiced claims as Truth. But they’ve learned no such lesson. That tactic continues to be the staple of how major US and British media outlets “report,” especially in the national security area. And journalists who read such reports continue to treat self-serving decrees by unnamed, unseen officials – laundered through their media – as gospel, no matter how dubious are the claims or factually false is the reporting.
Excellent take down.

Well, they finally figgered out what to do with Brian Williams.

How Do You Solve A Problem Like Brian Williams

Quote:
MSNBC: Lie Forward...Where Lying Liars Go To Lie.
NBC removes Brian Williams from 'Nightly News'

Quote:
NBC said Thursday that Brian Williams will not return to his job as "Nightly News" anchor following his suspension for misrepresenting himself, but will be given a second chance with the company as a breaking news anchor at the cable network MSNBC.

Williams said he was sorry for saying things that weren't true, apologized to colleagues and viewers, and said that "I'm determined to earn back their trust."
Yeah, good luck with that...

A beautiful example of the worst kind of unsubstantiated research, brilliantly executed by a young man who wishes to be a journalist. He's 16 years old...

Why I Messed With The Biggest News Outlet in The World – A Report.

Quote:
This report was made with the sole intention of highlighting the weakness in modern day reporting, and to drive me to be the opposite. No matter whom I may work for, the content I will bring them will be the sole truth, because there is nothing a reader likes more than truth. It will be content that I can varify, and it will be content that will not embarrass the hiring company.

The audience is the best tool of the trade, so take care of them.
I hope he remembers this & goes far...

Yep. The Grey Lady won't offend the Muslims, but pi$$ing off the Catlickers is just fine...

The New York Times, Which Refused to Run Any Mohammad Images Claiming They Simply Would Not Run Pictures That Offended Any Religious Group, Runs Picture of Pope Made Up of Condoms

Quote:
You might say, how do they know this offends the religious?

Easy. Their own article says the picture is drawing complaints from Catholics in Milwaukee.

Their headline:


Portrait of Pope Benedict XVI Made of Condoms Draws Complaints in Milwaukee
Further:

NYT public editor’s answer to a “perfectly reasonable question” raises even more questions

Quote:
Just to complete my thoughts on the issue, the consistent editorial decision would be to run all of these images or none of them. The proper editorial decision would be to run them all, especially those that produce more noteworthy responses. The New York Times’ Corbett is arguing that the more noteworthy the response, the less the images should be shown. Under that rubric, we’d publish less and less information about wars than the issues and conflicts that drive them, and less about elections than about the launches of candidacies, and so on.
M'bold...
